The cottage is ideally situated for exploring all that the area has to offer.

Very nice, well equipped and clean
We have had very relaxing week at the cottage
Lovely property, it lived up to the photos, I would definitely book it again
Really lovely property, bedrooms were both a good size, plenty of room and the owner was kind enough to allow our caged pets to come too. Gardens are a real plus, lots of seating areas and beautifully kept. Shower was great and many extras were supplied, lovely to get fresh scones on arrival. The property is well placed to explore the whole of the Dales area. This cottage is great, no unpleasant surprises, I would recommend it with no reservations. We had a delightful and relaxing holiday.
Paradise in the Dales
Absolutely wonderful stay in this gorgeous little attached cottage. Very well equipped and spotlessly clean. The double bedroom looks out onto the stunning landscaped gardens, and all the rooms have a beautiful outlook. Our little dog loved running in the meadows and fields and the owners were very accommodating. By far this property is outstanding and the gorgeous garden make it feel like a little corner of Paradise. We loved it and will definitely go back and recommend it to our friends and family. The owners were so kind and warm and made us feel really welcome. Its a haven for watching birds and I took many photos of the flowers and plants in the peaceful garden. Lots of lovely place to sit and just enjoy the peace and quiet. Its nothing short of idyllic and we can't recommend it highly enough.
Lovely property with beautiful gardens and surrounding land. Thought it might be a bit strange being next door to the owners but they were lovely and we hardly saw them anyway. Plenty to do in the area, some great sights and walks. Thank you for a great holiday.
Great hosts and beautiful setting
One of the best places we've stayed. Cottage recently decorated and well presented. All necessities provided, great shower and beds. Garden really beautiful and access across pastures to village. Lovely but not intrusive hosts. Easy access to a lot of places. Bathroom is on a different floor to bedrooms is only minor gripe.
We had a wonderful holiday. Good accommodation. good weather.
Our overall view was one of a very pleasant area, the views were superb, the weather was good, and our host was a delight to speak to. One thing that needs to be borne in mind with the property is that it is an upside down house. Toilets on the ground floor and the accommodation ie. kitchen, lounge and bedrooms upstairs. This would not suit some people who find it difficult to get up and down stairs especially during the night. The gardens were an absolute joy to spend time in.
